Bachpan after Pachpan (Childhood after Fity Five) is a social initiative campaign run by a group of Third Year Mass Media students of Wilson College in association with Silver Inning Foundation, Harmony and other NGO’s . The campaign aims at sensitizing the community, especially the youth about the issues faced by the Elderly today. The campaign focuses on Intergenerational Bonding because we believe that most of the problems faced by the Elderly (like Elder Abuse, Neglect etc) can be changed a great deal if the youth stand up for them.
Watch a group of 47 senior citizens young at heart, grooving to 'dhinka chika' and reliving their youth at High Street Phoenix. These enthusiastic 55+ years old adults are thinking of nothing else except enjoying themselves & having a good time. As they say truly "Old is Gold" and these "young" adults have proved just that!
We at ‘Bachpan after Pachpan’ seek to make the lives of Senior citizens pleasant at the twilight of their lives. We aim at creating an elder-friendly world. We take steps which ensure that the Elderly experience the joy of their childhood and youth even at this age. We encourage and inspire the society to take initiative to care for the elderly and to extend to them the much needed support, love and aid in their own small ways. It can be anything… just listening to what they have to say, just helping them cross the road, buy a train or bus ticket, making them aware of their rights or simply just make them laugh their heart out loud.
As part of the campaign, we are doing various events in the city.
One of the events that we organized is Flash Mob – which took place today, the 4th of Jan 2012, at High Street Phoenix, Mumbai , India around 5.00 in the evening. The event saw 47 Senior Citizens of an NGO Harmony initiate and perform a Flash Mob. It was a huge success.
Another event that we will be organizing is a Karaoke Night for Senior Citizens, in association with the online karaoke portal singchana.com. Our partner NGO for the same is Silver Inning Foundation, founded and headed by Mr. Sailesh Mishra. Silver Innings is working towards creating Elder Friendly World where Ageing becomes a Positive and Rewarding Experience.
